17 Sep HCTTF Joins Coalition Letter Urging CMS to Pay APM Bonuses
The Health Care Transformation Task Force joined an industry coalition letter urging CMS to expeditiously pay the 2019 Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) bonuses and in future years commit to pay these bonuses no later than June 30th of each year. The nine organizations expressed concerns with the long-delayed distribution of the five percent Advanced APM bonus for performance year 2017. Under the 2015 Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), this bonus was expected to be distributed in calendar year (CY) 2019. After nearly two years, the delay in payment of the bonus remains both unexpected and unexplained.
